National Service Medal and Memorial

Monday, 11 March 2019 11:25:22 Europe/London

In 1939 Parliament introduced the National Service Act, calling on the men and women of the UK to prepare for National Service, either within an arm of the regular services or as a civilian in one of the many voluntary groups being formed and trained at that time. With typical British pride the nation rallied to this call and the ranks of both the armed forces and home defence elements swelled until those who fought for peace were backed by over sixteen million men and women registered for non-military National Service. After WWII others were called to National Service and served with pride to carry the flag to the farthest corners of the globe. By December 1960 when the National Service Act was abolished some five million three hundred thousand young people had been conscripted into the forces.

The commemorative National Service Medal medal, originally proposed and sponsored by the Royal British Legion, is available to those who performed National Service, both military and civilian, between January 1930 and December 1960. It has raised over £600,000 for the Poppy Appeal and The Royal Britsih Legion. The medal is available for application for those who served plus next of kin or direct descendants. View Medal
